CANCELLED - Strategies for Internet Searching Success (2 sessions)

Thursday, November 14, 2019 Show more dates
9:30am - 11:30am

THIS EVENT HAS BEEN CANCELLED -- If you are ready to upgrade your skills in making the Internet work for you, join Reference Librarian, Mary Ratzer, for two sessions of exploration, practice, and takeaways for future use. Using what the web insider knows about  strategically searching for relevant and useful information, the class personalizes ways to solve problems and get smarter on the web. Shifts in Google and other search engines are updated, along with insight to how they package your search results for their business goals. Alternative search tools and highly authoritative resources, some of which are based in the "Deep Web" are sampled and analyzed.

This is an intermediate level class. An intermediate level learner is someone who has good mouse and keyboard skills and who can open and close applications, but needs further instruction with applications such as email, word processing, or other office software. Intermediate courses prepare you for advanced level courses offered by the library.
